Get a medical certificate from your pharmacist
If you’re sick and need leave from work, many employers require a certificate from a health professional, such as a medical certificate or carer’s leave certificate.
Complete Care is able to provide these certificates if you’re too unwell to perform your job.
How do medical certificates work at Complete Care?
Our Pharmacists will need to assess your symptoms to provide a medical certificate. This will include the recommended time off work, including dates.
You can collect your certificate in store or we can email it to you.
This goes for symptoms assessment too. You can present in person or get in touch with us over the phone.
Complete Care also stocks a huge range of medication to help you get back to performing your tasks as quickly as possible.
